An amazing Friday of hip hop

By Josh Rizeberg on September 6, 2012

There is a lot to do this weekend. So I'll just list it out for ya'll. Friday there's a bunch of stuff to choose from. Sweatbox Entertainment, which is the production side of Mr. Von's crew, brings "Slice of Hip-Hop 2", which is a show he plans at Louie G's in Fife. Louie G's always has an all-you-can-eat pizza buffet going-on during their shows, so that's awesome. The sound is always good at Louie G's also. On the bill this time is none other than Mr. Von himself, Neema, Spaceman, Disekt One, and Jon Salt. This would be a good show even in Seattle. It's only $5 to get in, which is a steal on a Friday night and the show is all-ages, so that's a win!

                  Also Friday night in Kent at the Central Ave Pub, D.J. Skrewball and his cool-ass fiancée, Dawn Burke, are having an engagement party, hooray! Congratulations Family! The show is free but ya can always bring a little wedding-donation, knowhatI'msayin? Bring in the occasion with Influential Minds, Big Bounce and Tacnology Entertainment, and more. On a side-note, Big Bounce is a Tacoma Hip-Hop stalwart. He's down with everybody and has a wonderful, raspy, deep, gravelly, sinister voice.

                  Perhaps the biggest show of the night is Abom's release for his fifth project titled, "5 Starz". The release-show is at The California Night Club, which as of now is the main Hip-Hop venue in Tacoma. It's only $5 to get in and that comes with a copy of the album, so that's a bargain. It's a 24 track project, so it's worth the affordable entry-fee. The night features performances from A.R. Mastermind, King Scrub, 1 Take (who is Darius and Ryan C.), Sky Pilot, and I'm sure there's going to be some cool special-guests.

                  Honestly, that's not even all the shows there are Friday, but that's all I'm going to talk about for now. I'll see ya'll out there this weekend.
